For most of us, our experience with artificial intelligence (AI) comes with out smartphones using it for better pictures or identifying things, but for noise cancellation? Is that even possible? Well, that seems to be what the ASUS ROG Strix Go 2.4 is all about.
According to ASUS, the device uses a "massive, deep-learning database" that can "identify and counteract environmetal noises" to improve the effectiveness of its noise-canceling functionality for the microphone. This includes sounds of keyboard clatter or even background discussion between people, but of course, it should include other noises such as the room's fan or air conditioner, your dog barking or your mother scolding you for gaming too long (okay, maybe not).
In terms of specs, the ROG Strix Go 2.4 is a wireless headphone that uses 2.4GHz WiFI and features USB-C 2.4 GHz RF technology with dual antennas for instant audio transmission to ensure it doesn't come with any lags. The microphone is detachable and if you prefer it to be wired, you definitely have that option. In fact, ASUS recommends to plug it in if you want Hi-Res audio playback support. It weighs in at 290g, with up to 25 hours of battery life on a full charge, and if you're in a hurry, you can get three hours out of a quick 15-minute charge.
According to Lowyat who reached out to ASUS Malaysia, the device is expected to launch in Malaysia sometime in December. With a current price tag of GBP£159.99 (~MYR862), we can also expect the local price to be around there as well.
